This is so out of character for me but im desperate. I was put on benzos for a little over a year. Taper from klonopin to diazepam over 6months. Now i have been off for 5 weeks. Its hell. High bp,palpatations,tinitus,insomnia,head pressure and dizzy,feeling not real,and terrible anxiety and agoraphobia. Im having a hard time wrapping my head around that this is withdrawel. Dr says no way yet they have no answers. Any help would be appreciated.
Your doctor as well as a lot of doctors do not understand about benzos and since they do not understand they have no clue if you're having withdrawals from benzos. I do believe you are experiencing post acute withdrawal syndrome (PAWS) Did you taper slowly with small cuts in dosage when you tapered off the diazepam?
